Acorn Multi Academy Trust is the admissions authority for its member schools.

This means the MAT is responsible for determining the admissions policies for its schools and taking decisions on applications. The local governing bodies of each school play an active part in the admissions process. 

You can find out more about the applications process by looking at your Local Authority School Admissions web pages:

Our Admissions Policies 

Admissions policies are reviewed every year in the Autumn Term. You can find our determined admissions policies below - we review the school policies annually and may make changes if we feel this would be in the best interests of the school and community.

Each academic year has its own policy document, with details about how to apply for a place in school from the start of Reception through to Year 6.
